What Lies In Your Journey?
Tears were streaming down my face as I knelt in the dark storage room. I could feel the cold, hard concrete through my thin and faded blue jeans as I dug my hand into a nearby wooden shelf and vocally cried out to God to please save me from the pain that I was experiencing. I argued that it was not fair to have to go through all this and that I am not as strong as he thinks I am. My heart was aching, and there didn’t seem to be any way to console myself. My emotional burdens felt as if they were going to completely crush me by their sheer weight. I was shocked at the intensity in which my body continually heaved with each heartfelt sob. I had been through tough things, but nothing that shook me to the core as much as this did. A million questions went through my mind. “Did I make a mistake? Is there something else that I could have done? What could I possibly do?”

Jun 19, 2014Even though this is a short read, it was very intense and real. It kept me glued to my screen not wanting to put it down. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to be uplifted into positive awareness after a traumatizing experience when you know giving up is not an option.
Jun 16, 2014A very interesting read. I have had many similar experiences and know first hand of what the author is teaching. Although we all accept lies in our minds to determine our self worth to some degree or another, this self delusion is magnified when metal illness is in your family. A lot of people want to say "Just think happy thoughts and it'll all go away." but when you have a genetic emotional/ mental imbalance the natural ability to produce positive thoughts is drastically hindered, thus making the simple act of saying "Yes I can!" and believing it ten times harder. Yes positive self talk is the key to healing, but it may be harder for some then others. Add emotional, physical or sexual abuse on top of this and it makes it increasingly harder for that individual to tell the difference between the truth and the lies, the negative and the positive. I too found the love I was getting from those who should've loved me by turning to god, and he carried me through a dark... More > and miserable childhood and adolescence. And I fully agree with the author's sentiments that God is the ultimate way to find true healing. One thing I would add is that although you can't control the words and deeds of others, and are only in control of your own reactions and thoughts, if you don't separate yourself from negative people and influences every day will be like taking one step forward and two steps back. I only found true peace when I finally excepted that I had to leave the negative people behind to truly learn to see the positive. Even when this meant abandoning my family and excepting that i was not responsible for fixing them and that I had to finally learn to take care of myself instead of always putting my needs after others and taking blame for their miseries. I would recommend this quick read to anyone looking for a little inspiration in their own lives or the lives of someone they love who is struggling.< Less
